Historical Note

During the spring of 1935, a group of young people in the Wesley Foundation began talking about summer plans to get together – picnicking, swimming, etc. No notes were kept during the first 18 months of the group’s organization. Officers were discussed finally, and two were suggested: a president and secretary-treasurer to merely head the group and keep plans moving.
